Just wanting to share my initial thoughts on the new Chanel Le Vernis Long Wear Nail Colour formula. If you follow me on Instagram, you would know I’m currently on vacation in Hawaii and have acquired a lot of beauty products on my wishlist (yay!) that are not in Australia yet, including these new nail polishes that are only exclusive to Chanel.com and the boutique as of now.
I bought the shade MONOCHROME; ORGANDI; CAMELIA and ROUGE ESSENTIEL, and all of them are new colors for this range. I have worn the color ORGANDI on my nails for several days now. It applies smooth and streak free, but I don’t notice a significant difference to the old Le Vernis nail colors for application. In terms of finish, it is glossier than the older formula , but not as good as the nail gloss formula that was released for Sunrise Trip (reviewed here) as part of the Spring 2016 collection. I would still need a coat of clear gel topcoat to achieve the salon gel-like finish.
ORGANDI is an elegant nude dusty salmon pink color with no shimmer (my sort of color). 2 coats will give an opaque finish as swatched. It is not as nude so it doesn’t wash you out, and still giving you this clean polished look. This range is supposed to be more long lasting and nail friendly as it contains some nourishing ingredients to improve the quality of the nails. I have had it on for 4 days now and so far it is looking nearly as freshly applied with no chipping.
Swatch: 2 thin coats of ORGANDI with no top coat
Bottom Line: The Long Wear Nail Formula and the original line are not hugely different, but if you want to go for some cult favorite Chanel nail colors such as Particuliere, and Pirate etc that exist in both formulas, then I would definitely go for the newer version as they are more long lasting.
